Growth and Diversification Patterns

Growth and Diversification Patterns

(p.105) Six Growth and Diversification Patterns
Embryos in Deep Time

Marcelo Sánchez

University of California Press

Fossils potentially provide direct evidence on how changes in growth strategies may have affected diversification patterns in geologic time. New strategies may have allowed some species to exploit new ecological opportunities or contributed to their demise. This chapter discusses the following topics: ocean acidification in the past and today; major patterns of larval evolution in the oceans; climate change and mammalian developmental evolution; Jurassic sharks; survival and diversification in the early mammalian lineage; and islands as experiments in life history evolution.

Keywords:   growth, diversification, fossils, ocean acidification, evolution, climate change, Jurassic sharks, mammals
